Realism in watercolour and paintings that are sustaining
For the last couple of years I've mentioned the work of David Poxon in the RI watercolour exhibition at the Mall Galleries . Last year he was kind enough to send me images of work at a resolution that really shows his skill off to advantage. Today I opened my emails to see that he'd sent me these 2 with permission to use them here :>) Thank you David :>)
Do click on them to see them larger - they are well worth it.
The word that came to my mind was 'sustaining' - this word was applied to a painting of mine by a buyer and I think it was one of the nicest compliments I've ever had.
Sustaining - there is so much in these to keep you revisiting - noticing new things, admiring textures, subtle colours, lost edges, mysterious areas, intense observation , lovely use of paint, unusual and interesting subject matter, the compositions work in an abstract way, quiet areas vs busy areas ......
I'd love to own one.
If you are in London - check them out. He has had 4 accepted this year.
The exhibition runs Tue 20 - Fri 30 April 2010
And of course Sarah Wimperis of Muddy Red Shoes is also showing her gorgeous work. Good luck Sarah.
I'd like one of yours too!
